Perfect Pakistani cuisine!

Don't let the generic name fool you - Charcoal Chicken is not another American fried-chicken joint. This is some authentic and spicy Pakistani fare. My search led me here, and if you were just walking by, you'd probably keep walking. It's a nondescript strip-mall eatery, but their prices are good... read more

Visited here recently. All round good food. For those of you that want to be careful note that this is run by Ahmediyyas (Qadianis), which sadly is a theme throughout the USA. Not sure if meat is sourced from proper halal sources or Ahmediyyah source. Veggie dishes are great!

I never had Pakistani food before. I was impressed with the flavor. I though it will be very much like Indian food, because of the curry and other ingredients, but what a wonderful surprise.

This shopping center has an amazing number of restaurants. This is an excellent place with great food at great prices. First time, I ordered lamb and chicken kabobs.

Great place for Indian/Pakastani food. They are very nice and cook some amazingly tasty food. If you want to avoid the chains and get something different, try Charcoal Chicken. I like the veggie options.
